Jodie Foster’s LBD & new, shorter hair: attractive or unflattering?


These are new photos of Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly at the NY Film Festival premiere of Carnage. I suspect that Jodie is wearing Armani, just because she almost always wears Armani for red carpet situations. I don’t love the dress, or the shoes, but I really like her haircut. She’s still a very beautiful woman, and I buy that she’s un-tweaked too.

Enough of the superficial stuff! For whatever reason, Jodie Foster has just gone completely and totally crazy this year with her career choices. Earlier this year, she was out and about, promoting the hell out of The Beaver, that dumb film she did with Mel Gibson. She not only agreed to work with her spiritual soulmate Mel, actor-to-actor, she DIRECTED the p.o.s. too. And then for her follow-up to Bad Career Choices 101, she worked with Roman Polanski, who directed Carnage, the film adaptation of the play, God of Carnage. To be fair to Jodie, other actors made the bad decision to work with Polanski – John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and of course, Kate Winslet (who looks like the over-wrought, bad-accented weak link in the trailer).

So why does Jodie get so much grief? I think it’s because she’s so vocal in her support of Mel AND Polanski. Where many prominent actors work with Roman Polanski, they rarely try to publicly defend him, and perhaps it can be easily explained as a one-time mistake in judgment, or an actor just having blinders on regarding Polanski’s considerable talent as a director versus how sucky and terrible he is as a person. You can’t explain it away with Jodie, because she just seems to have consistently horrible taste in men. Plus, the fact that The Beaver and Carnage have come out within months of each other probably doesn’t help her either.

Sigh… at least her hair is cute.

    who doesn’t like jodie foster eh?…

  2. Julia says:

    I like Jodie the actress, i don’t like Jodie the appeaser and sympathiser of the likes of Mel Gibson.

  3. Joan says:

    I don’t really care for Jodie as an actress or personally but she does look really great. I love the hair and she looks super fit, not to mention happy. Good for her.

  4. gee says:

    I don’t like the cut of the dress.

  5. Ell says:

    Love John C. Reilly. Watched Cyrus last night, he’s such a good actor.

  6. Darlene says:

    I used to LOVE her, love everything she did, everything she stood for…but after all of her vocal support of two of the most reprehensible men in Hollywood…I find her a bitter pill to swallow. It’s kind of nice she’s been out of the spotlight, as I don’t care to see or think on her any longer. I’ve been disappointed over the years that she’s never come out as a lesbian. She has a LOT of “weight” in Hollywood, and her voice could go a long way toward support and tolerance for the LGBT community.

    plus that dress looks terrible. Hair looks sweet, but not the dress.

  7. Pix says:

    I used to be a big fan until I saw that photograph of her with that pedophile Roman Polanski. When she stuck up for Mel I gave her a pass because…well I don’t know. Now that she’s out there supporting a child rapist I am done. No more love, support or affection — just disgust.

    And she looks awful in that tacky dress/shoe combo. Even Armani gets it wrong.

  8. Theuth says:

    I loved Jodie before this mess. She’s a incredible actress, her role in Carnage is maybe the best out of the quartet…but her choice of defending Gibson and Polansky! I really don’t understand it. Is she big friend with them? Do she know them so well?

  9. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I’d like to see Jodie on Ellen.

  10. Denise says:

    I love Jodie and I understand her support for Mad Mel. However, Roman Polanski will never get a pass for what he did. He needs to do his time. The fact that he is really a great director cannot make up for his sexual deviance.

  11. Lady D says:

    I used to admire her.

  12. Str8Shooter says:

    I wonder if she would be defending that POS Polanski if SHE was the one that was drugged and raped at his house when she was 13 years old. Then again, I’ve also wondered if she would continue to defend her buddy who refers to Jews as ‘oven-dodgers’ if she was Jewish.

    She SUCKS.

  13. GlitterSha says:

    Is she out?

  14. Ally says:

    Yeah, I’m no longer a fan of Ms. Polanski-Gibson.

  15. sassy says:

    Ha. She seems to be friends to the friend-less. I bet she’s probably friends with the NAMBLA president too.

  16. smh says:

    i don’t like Jodie but still leave the woman alone. looking good is clearly not a priority in her life rn

  17. Jay says:

    Personally I don’t care who she supports. These people are here to make movies. If it is good, I’ll go see it. If bad, I don’t. She’s known Mel for years, they are close friends and I understand her sticking up for him. Haven’t really heard her talk about Polanski, but everyone seems to want to work for him, so why not her? Hair is cute, the dress not so much.

  18. Zoya says:

    I like her…but the dress…and those tacky shoes. ugh

  19. Playlist says:

    Great actress. Don’t like the dress, don’t like the haircut. I also used to admire her, but don’t anymore. I can give her a pass on her loyalty to Mel, but not on Polanski. I guess her stand on women’s rights are selective so they don’t interfere with her career. Hypocrite much?

  20. Catherine says:

    She is a great actress. Besides that I cannot attest to her character to make any judgements. Who knows why she befriends the unworthy. Maybe she has a mother teresa complex in saving the unfortunate.

  21. Manfredsenjenson says:

    Please Jodie, eat something.

  22. jenna says:

    This article is spreading lies. Where exactly did she publically defend Roman Polanski? And she has said over and over again that she can’t defend Mel Gibson’s actions. Other people didn’t have to suffer being bombarded with Mel Gibson questions because they didn’t have to promote a film starring him. The Beaver’s reviews were okay and she’s getting Oscar buzz for Carnage. Give the woman a break.

  23. ZenB!tch says:

    She’s a beautiful lady, she has a bangin’ body but I don’t think the top of that dress would look flattering on anyone.

  24. texasmom says:

    I like the dress and I love how she looks trim and fit without being gristly and veiny. I think she needs to be careful about her hair because she looks like she is about to collapse in a bad case of “Bruce Willis Head.” Her forehead is huge! Her face is so angular! Maybe some bangs would soften her face so I won’t imagine “Die Hard With a Vengeance” when I see her next.

  25. Amy says:

    What a pretty smile in the third photo down! But that dress is fug.

    Oh, Little Black Dress, got it.
    thanks for all your help

  28. Legget says:

    She is a good actress, but I agree she should stop defend assholes like Gibson or Polanski.
